Hann victory seals White's exit
Jimmy White
Jimmy White also had a poor season on the snooker table
Jimmy White's North American 8-Ball Pool Open campaign was ended by a first-round loss to Quinten Hann.

Hann, banned from snooker for eight years after being found guilty of match-fixing, beat the Londoner 8-5 to progress from the group phase.

White also went down to fellow group opponents David Alcaide of Spain 8-2, Ivica Putnik of Croatia 8-2 and Ronato Alcano of the Philippines 8-5.

But Ronnie O'Sullivan won two of his four matches to reach the second round.

White's exit at least gives him a few more days to prepare for the start of the new snooker season.

Having lost his place in the top 32, he will now turn his attention to qualifying for the opening ranking tournament of the season, the Northern Ireland Trophy, which starts on 13 August.

His first qualifying match is scheduled for 1600 BST on Monday, 31 July, in Prestatyn.
